29th Sunday in Ordinary Time, October 18, 2009

What can I do when I feel the worlds harsh breath and know
That if I stay too long in it’s path
My path shall be burned up also.
I must go back to the land again
And find the eagle at home with the rock.
I must climb to the mountaintop
And find the spot where the river begins.
I must lie quietly beside the earth
And find the warmth of its heart.
I must turn my vision to the sky
And find the purpose of clouds.
Then trouble seems far away
And the breath which consumes all beauty
Has passed right over me.

To celebrate the Year of the Priest
